Avoid These Common Mistakes For Fitness Success

How many hours per day are you spending at the gym and still not getting the results that you want? OVER 55 million people start their fitness journey in January and OVER 65% are done by March!!  There are a bunch of reason of reasons for this major drop off.
  • Lack Of Results
  • Extreme Burnout
  • Lack Of Knowledge From Bad Fitness Information 
Here are few more common mistakes to avoid for the first time exerciser or the veteran gym rat.  Keep in mind there are many variations or maybe you have a combination of each of these mistakes.
  1. Muscle And Fiction:  How many times have you tried a program from one muscle magazine and noticed zero result?  Have you noticed that every fitness magazine advertises bogus claims or the common infomercial that states " If you lose more than 30# in the first 2 weeks then discontinue usage"..hmmm heck yes I take those odd.
  2. Law Of Diminishing Returns:  This common law of economics should not be forgotten.  With fitness not necessarily more is better.  The longer you spend weight training the more damage that you are doing to the body.
  3. Skipped Meals:  Are you skipping meals or snacks?  If so then you are missing one of the most IMPORTANT steps of developing good habits.  A catabolic body (muscle wasting) will never produce lean muscle tissue to its fullest potential.
These are just a few to avoid for fitness success in January and for the rest of your fitness journey!!    Share it! Facebooktwitter

Surviving The FIRST 21 Days Of Fitness

Short term pain for long term gain! In order to achieve what other’s haven’t you must be willing to make sacrifices that others won’t. Unfortunately in the beginning these are short term pain. Every successful fitness transformation requires short term painful sacrifices that really make the major difference in long term success. TOP tips for surviving the FIRST 21 days of fitness!!!!    1. Hitting The Snooze Button– Yes the snooze button in the morning can be your big obstacle. By waking up 10 minutes early each day this can be the deciding factor to give you enough time to eat your balanced out breakfast! No more drive through or sugar packed breakfast bars. 2. Exercising In The Morning- Studies show a 90% success rate for people that exercise in the early morning before work. If life gets in the way then you must make it a priority no matter what to exercise first thing in the morning. The old saying ” Early bird gets the worm”:) 3. Pack Your Lunch– If you try to wing your lunch you will make bad choices that are not on your program. Co-workers and friends can easily influence you with your guard down. Take the extra time each night to prepare your lunch for the following day. Fail to plan to plan to fail:) 4. Starting A Fitness Program– Yes this is short term pain with long term gains. Everybody struggles in the beginning. Nobody is bullet proof from first time soreness. I truely believe this is mentally tough for exercisers trying to start up again with their fitness program. Nobody likes to be sore or struggling to breath. Our bodies are a creature of habit and will adjust within 2 weeks. Just get through the beginning stages:)) 5. Switching Your Food Choices– Yes we love salt, sugar and fat! Yes the temptations are killers but are you willing to fight through the temptations to get where you want to be? Our bodies are constantly trying to reward and comfort. Set your mindset for cruise control and fight off the battles of temptations! Short term pain for long term gain!! 6. Cooking And Grocery Shopping- Yes cooking is a short term pain with long term gains.  I know many claim they have limited culinary skills.  Another short term pain is cleaning the kitchen and grocery shopping.  To look and feel your best I can guarantee you that eating out for your meals will produce NO results of lean sculpted body.  Take the extra time and experiment with herbs and spices. Also I highly recommend the cookbook Eating For Life and TasteofMai.blogspot.com for creative healthy recipes. 7. Fear–  Yes FEAR is our #1 killer of long term gains in fitness!  Many fear the fact of failure in fitness.  It is much easier to use fear as an obstacle to keep you from reaching your potential.  Many fear of looking out of place in the gym environment.  I highly recommend the group setting of fitness boot camps, group x classes, and also seeking the guidance of a qualified personal trainer.  REMEMBER everyone no matter how experienced they are in fitness has  felt the  fear of the new gym environment.  This fear is a short term pain for long term gains.Share it!
